More Pumpkins For My Girls


It was not easy finding time to carve pumpkins for my 4 girls year after year. They picked the patterns, I carved most of them because they were too small to handle the knives.
Somehow, I hope as they grow older that they can see past my being so over protective when the carving was going on. Enjoy
One by one, they arrive on the hearth.
When we were done, it was worth all of the effort and seeing the faces on the kids and pumpkins. Nice !
